| Our Philosophy
Holy Child Catholic School is a Christ-centered school where the daily life of the teachers and students revolves around and is permeated by the teachings of Jesus Christ. We are guided and inspired by the example of our Blessed Mother. Our principal goal is the development of the whole child in accordance with the mission of the Church: the salvation of souls.
The philosophy of the school in general, and the religious education program in particular, is that the school be a continuation of each family's role in "passing on the faith" to its children. The school views the parents as primary in the teaching of values and spirituality, and provides ample opportunities for the parents to be involved in the educational process.
The mission of Holy Child Catholic School is to advance the development of the soul, mind, and body through a rigorous classical curriculum; to foster spiritual and intellectual growth; to develop stewardship of God's gifts and inspire a love for the Eucharist, the Church, and evangelization.
